    Finding this location turned out to be quite a great experience. I met friends who had traveled all day from the east coast. This was a perfect location near their hotel in Carlsbad. The restaurant is neat and quite comfortable. Our server was very friendly. I was impressed my note was read and she asked who at the table was from out of town. The timing of the courses was very good. It allowed for conversation between cocktails, appetizers and main course. The dessert presentation leaves you almost obligated to participate. It was difficult to refuse. Delicious! I will definitely go again...and take friends with me.

    I live locally and picked this spot, as my husband and I always forget how much we enjoy it for a quick date night away from the kids. I was meeting with girl friends from high school we had not seen each other for 30 years. I wanted the spot to be a place with a nice patio atmosphere, not on top of other people so we could visit. It was just what I wanted and more.

    This is a restaurant associated with the Sheraton Inn. They are very close to Legoland and during the two hours we lingered over lunch 90 of the people who showed up had kids. The menu is quite limited, but we found the food to be of very good quality, service was very prompt and attentive without being obtrusive. We ate outside for lunch the atmosphere, even with the kids around, was quiet and the view mixes the colorful tops of the Legoland structures with the distance ocean view. We enjoyed bacon wrapped dates, mixed olives, fish tacos, and a steak salad.

    We sat outside for lunch, the weather was perfect. The hostess was very friendly and sat us at our table right away, no waiting. They have an excellent lunch menu to choose from and the tapas were very tasty and went nicely with their sangria. Nice quiet and relaxing ambiance with nice views. 20 20 has become one of our favorite places to dine and socialize.

    Dined on 6/13/2013
    My wife and I were travelling for our 21st & chose this restaurant because of its menu's similarity to our favorite Salt Lake City restaurant Epic. It had nice ambience, with a fellow playing Spanish guitar style music, and was busy, but not overly so. We tried many of the Tapas (Small Spanish savory dishes) and finished it off by sharing their "gourmet hamburger" (they had me at fried egg!). All were superb. The waitress then sold us on the dessert tree, which was 6 mini desserts and all I can say there is Wow!! Final note: We are water drinkers and the waitress, 2 bussers and even the manager, on one occasion, kept the water flowing, which means a lot. Overall, it was a night to be remembered for both of us and earned 5 stars from us.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    If there was a minus star available for grading it would have fit this experience. The service was the worst we had ever experienced. It was so bad we actually ended up canceling our dinner order and leaving after the cocktail and appetizer fiasco. We felt tormented with one order failure after another. They just couldn't get anything right. We had a great table but the view was of the parking lot...should have had the restaurant on the second floor for an ocean view. Would not recommend this place to our enemies! Don't Go!

    Great upscale dining, comfortable, casual decor, both indoor & outdoor dining. Compact menu with a little for everyone, we chose several of their tapas offerings tonight which were 1/2 off in the early evening. There were 2 of us for dinner this evening, the tapas offerings were easy to split, large enough portions that each got a nice portion, all items were very tasty. Wine and beverage list to complement the menu. Busy after work crowd, busy bar, great place for your next dining experience. We have been here multiple times, expect to be back again soon.

    Our waitress, Lili, was - friendly, attentive, and pleasant. The food was okay; shrimp tacos (3) nothing else - but good for a light meal. The ambiance was excellent - the room is very comfortable and pleasing to the eye. But booking on Open Table does NOT insure that you will be given what you requested when you booked. (a quiet booth away from the service areas, requested) - first stop with the hostess, small table in the center of the room with other tables close by with customers; second stop - the booth next to the service area/kitchen; third stop, a booth away from service areas. The hostess does not read your info. It was after lunch rush time, yes, there was a waitress assigned to our final spot, and yes, three booths were empty

    Made the mistake of going on a Saturday night and forgetting that it is very (too) close to Legoland. 7:30 reservations did not minimize the number of very young children. If I would have been told of the outside patio being covered and heated I would have checked it out and made the switch. Menu is limited and has only moderate imagination. The exception was the cheese and charcuterte plates. Service was somewhat of a fire drill starting with the hostess at the front. Two people handling a small room, acting like they were Patton going into battle.

    For how the Sheraton advertised Twenty/20 and for a Friday night at a notable resort, we expected much more upscale. Instead, we got something more like Denny's, although the food was better (Spanish-style). Service was poor and ambiance was lacking. Also, they shouldn't let kids in with only bathing suits on. We definitely won't be returning. Too bad for Sheraton.

    Very disappointed. I made reservations for Easter Brunch where it was advertized as on the veranda with ocean view. Although it was pricey (especially since it did not even include champagne or mimosas) I thought it would be an excellent chance to try out Twenty/20 to see if we wanted to add it to our list of favorites. We dine out often and we live only a few miles from this restaurant. When we were seated, I could hardly contain my disappointment. My seat was part of a bench that backed up to a wall that blocked any view. The table was like a spindly bar table without a real tablecloth. My view was of the far wall and a bar. When they wanted $10 extra for champagne on top of the high price (about $50 each), I knew we would not return.

The menu is enticing, along with the wine list. The happy hour is upscale AND affordable; what more could I ask for? Service? Yes! Check! Their fun events and consistent ability to deliver a great evening for me and my friends keeps me coming back time after time. This is a must-see!

    After reading about the great review on Twenty/20 Grill, we decided to try it. We were a party of 7 so were able to try various items. The lamb meatballs were out of this world, but then the rest of the food was just ok. The short rib is just that, ONE short rib and while good it just wasn't enough. I ordered the burger. It was ordered MR but came out WD. MAJOR disappointment. Drinks from the bar were pretty good but very pricey. One would expect that with a restaurant in a hotel but the wines were over priced. The atmosphere was trying to attract an adult crowd, with a fabulous outdoor seeting area with fire pits, but all the children running around changed it. Overall a little disappointing after reading the review in the paper.

    We came here hoping to get brunch on a Sunday. Apparently, their cut off for breakfast is 11:00am (on a SUNDAY!) and were told: Nope, too bad, so sad, lunch menu only! So we had lunch instead of breakfast/brunch food... which was not very good. The server was very absent-minded, and was probably the worst server we have ever had - very inattentive, very scatter-brained... very poor service. She never brought out the appetizer that I ordered, and after eating the burger for "lunch"... I didn't bother to remind her about the missing appetizer. Also, the coffee was lukewarm, and not refilled. I decided to give this restaurant another chance after a (very) bad experience here for dinner... unfortunately, we won't be back.

    We were surprised at how casual the place was for a Sheraton dining spot, but then we realized it's close to Legoland, which is why there are no tablecloths and LOTS of families with small children. But we enjoyed our experience and will re-visit. Especially look forward to warmer SoCal weather so we can enjoy their newly-opened outdoor patio. It has gorgeous views of the ocean.
